Chantecaille: Botanical-Based Skincare & Clean Makeup That Gives Back
Over the years, they’ve created a number of philanthropy collections that have raised awareness for endangered sea turtles, coral reefs, gorillas, wolves, bees, elephants and giraffes…to name a few! (See the full list of animals here.) Chantecaille’s goal is to connect, educate and provide support to conservation efforts around the globe–and they do it by creating cutting-edge skincare and makeup products that work.
To continue that generosity, our friends at Chantecaille have offered TME readers a special discount code!! Use THEMOMEDIT for 15% off a purchase of $75 or 15% off + a full-size Faux Cils Mascara when you spend $175!
Chantecaille formulates their products with sustainable ingredients from botanicals and plant stem cells. (They’re also free of phthalates, sulphate detergents, mineral oil, petrolatum, palm oil, synthetic colors and fragrances, and GMOs.) I had never tried their products before, but WOW was I missing out! Let’s start with this foundation:
One Of The Best Foundations I’ve Ever Tried: Chantecaille Future Skin Cushion Skincare Foundation
You guys, this one of the best foundations I’ve ever tried. It’s so lightweight, but it makes your skin look amazing. And you know how foundation can sometimes settle into fine lines and wrinkles? Not this stuff. It doesn’t even need to be set with powder. It gives a soft, smooth finish to your skin and blurs imperfections without needing to add any other makeup. It’s like a one-and-done kind of product.
Future Skin Cushion Skincare Foundation is a water-based formula with smoothing and anti-pollution skincare ingredients that blur imperfections and leave skin looking flawless. That’s quite the claim, but after using it a few times myself, I’m hooked. It’s easy to build coverage or keep it sheer and you can apply with your fingers or the included puff (I preferred the puff!). It’s the perfect foundation for travel since it’s so compact and doesn’t require extra brushes. Each compact comes with one inserted cushion and one refill (don’t accidentally throw one out!).
The best part? Every cushion feeds a baby elephant rescued by the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya, which operates the most successful orphaned baby elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world. The Orphans Project has successfully hand-reared and released more than 250 orphaned elephants back into the wild, but they require specialist milk formula every three hours, day and night, in order to survive. (You can also buy two bottles of milk for $6 here and Chantecaille will match every feeding purchased.)
Worth It: Chantecaille Bio Lifting Serum+
I couldn’t get over the rave reviews on this serum, but after trying it I can see why everyone loves it so much. It’s super-thick (most serums I’ve used run everywhere when I apply them) and somehow manages to hydrate and tighten skin when you put it on. It smooths skin, diminishes fine lines, and lifts and firms your skin both over time and immediately after you put it on. (Don’t believe me? Read the reviews–this stuff really is like magic in a bottle.) Oh — and it protects against blue light pollution, too. 100% worth it.
So Smooth: Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara
Ever since wearing extensions ruined my lashes, I’m always trying to take extra care of them and this mascara is perfect. It includes a unique peptide technology that promotes growth and strengthens natural lashes. This stuff glides on so smoothly and really does thicken and lengthen lashes without making them super-stiff and brittle or clumping. Reviewers said that their lashes grew and were healthier and stronger after using this mascara.
